There’s a serial dine-and-dasher on the loose in the Los Angeles area! Many women have met a man who goes by the name Paul Gonzales or Dave Gonzales on various dating apps and arranged to meet him for dinner. The women say that Gonzales orders a moderately expensive very quickly, scarfs it down and the bails, leaving the women to pay for the meal.
The L.A. County District Attorney's Office said that 44-year-old Gonzales has two bench warrants out for his arrest for petty theft and driving with an expired license. The DA also said that he has been to jail many times. The only good news to come out of this is that one of the restaurants comp’d one of the meals, but the woman still had to pay for his glass of wine.
Hopefully Gonzales is caught soon and these women finally find a guy who won't dine and dash on them!
